Cooler Master V10 or Corsair H70

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, starting to buy bits for my new build and figured I'd start with the cheaper stuff first, also the fact I had other stuff to pay out this week means I don't have enough for the bigger stuff

so, looking for personal opinions, personal experience ect...

the main question, Cooler Master V10 or Corsair H70

both are around the same price (V10 £86.80, H70 £81.70)

OR if you have another alternative for a similar budget (or cheaper) please let me know

Definitely H70 - V10 is the biggest waste of money in a cooler ever If you want some alternatives, Venomous X, Megahalems, Ture, CM 212, all good coolers for the $$

3 Pin. However you're going to want to replace with the stock H70 fans with some good aftermarket ones so you get better temps.

I will be replacing them eventualy, but the stock ones will do till I've got the system built and running

next week I'll start ordering the bigger stuff, got nothing to pay out now so every payday means order more stuff can't wait
